5. Discussion & Announcements

Round 1

  • [larissa] Update MSV-Meeting: see we will be around 30 people now for sure. I would heat the yoga room and attic before. Also I would join the cooking-team from msv on friday, so we can make dinner for everyone in the house. maybe someone else from kh can join, depending on the amount of kh-people? Also we got a big juice-donation (1 euro-palett) from a company which will probably arrive on thursday. any volunteers for unloading and bringing it down to the basement. KH can of course also drink the juice/smoothies :)
    • dinner will be at 6pm already
    • how many KH people here? less than 10 for sure
    • schedule will be printed and made public so we know busy times for kitchen and bathrooms
    • larissa will make signs and put them everywhere to show where toilets are and such
    • communal cooking is not specifically for kh on the weekend, but it might end up being enough anyway
      • [Martin] what about food? How many meals? I don't think we will have enough for 30 people and KH for a weekend.
      • there will be shopping and smoothies coming in, penny pickups before and during
  • [Antonin] hosting Lara
    • we got a request from Lara to come to Kanthaus again (last visit in August 2020 - I don't actually remember meeting her but according to the record I should have, oops!).
    • she proposes to come on Dec 6th already, leaving before xmas, so that it does not collide with the Month of Calm
    • would anyone like to host? (time-wise I potentially could but I'm already hosting Klara so maybe it's a bit of a stretch)
    • given the MoC and concerns about house fullness in 2024 I totally understand if people prefer to turn down the request. To me she seems to be a great fit for the house (based on what she writes and Anja's memory of her), but if we're full, we're full.
    • No resistance for the time before Christmas. Janina will host. We'll see later how we continue in January.
  • [kito] Vroni coming next week
    • is it too full? if not kito would host her.
    • no resistance.
  • [kate] can anyone see themselves helping with a couple of small construction tasks in the freeshop on Wednesday/Thursday? Remove the top 2 shelves (no one can reach there and they make the room dark and are dust traps) and hang a mirror. Martin looked at it and said it was simple enough. Message me.
  • [Janina] MoC decision following the corresponding Slack post
    • proposed time frame: December 18 to January 14 (4 full weeks)
    • voting results: 3 support, 2 indifference, 1 slight resistance
    • adopted!
  • [Loup] Floor plan creation
    • maybe wait until doug comes back so that there's no unnecessary work done
    • propriety formats as output would be uninteresting
    • putting lots of work into completely new plans seems a waste

Round 2

  • [Antonin] Liora (mentioned above in the schedule) is a friend from France who is passing by. She's interested in discovering Kanthaus and will likely be keen to meet you all (not just visiting me), I hope it's okay. She's aware that the MSV group is coming so we plan to retreat to OstPost to help leave space in KH during that time. If you have any concerns let me know and I can tell her not to come.
    • no resistance
  • [Martin] Biomüll is full. What to do?
    • request another/bigger container
    • until then let's use buckets from the garden shed as temporary storage when the bin is full
  • [kito] CryptoKüfa next monday(?)
    • unsure if it will really happen
    • there was no advertisement so far, more help would be needed
    • if there is interest in this please contact kito
  • [Janina] Garden prep for the winter
    • stuff could be brought to the attic if they are not too dirty or ugly
    • clearing the hose, switch off tap water
    • communal action?
    • Tilmann would leave the rainwater tank, it hadn't had a problem with freezing in the past
  • [Larissa] Riff! It's gonna be the 19th!

  • Tue.: Martin, Maxime
